Today’s topic is pretty clear from the title.
Within the last couple years, I’ve tackled a couple genres I’d always wanted to write but held myself back from for various reasons.
One genre was young adult. I wasn’t sure I could write it “authentically”. But I’m pleased with how it turned out. I just need to finish the next book in that series.
The other genre was BDSM romance. I’d shied away from it because someone told me I’d be terrible at at, and well, I believed that person for quite a long time. However, I got a severe case of the fuck its and did it anyway. Reviews and sales have been damn good, so I think I’m doing okay there.
I guess the only other thing I’ve always wanted to write but I haven’t yet are children’s picture books. I’ve always loved them. (My collection is still ridiculously huge.) And I think it would be fun – fairy tales or maybe silly stuff. I’ve had a pirate story floating around in my head for a while, now. Maybe one of these days, my son, Corwin, and I can collaborate on it together.
This is one of my favorite doodles of his.
Be sure to check out what the other bloggers would like to write but haven’t yet.

Pirate story! Pirate story! I’d love to see what you come up with for one. I bet you’d rock it so hard.
Maybe this will go in the calendar for next year. 🙂
Collaboration with you son – what a wonderful dream.
I love this idea. I’ll bring it up to him *after* he finishes his senior project.
It’s awesome that you’ve already tackled two of the genres you wanted to. You should definitely go for it with the pirate story!
I love Corwin’s doodle! I bet a collaboration between the two of you would be amazing 😀
I need to find my notes for it. Maybe we can work on it this summer. That would be a really cool project to to together.
I love that doodle, too. He’s so talented, and I love the way his brain works. 😀
